The Supreme Empire of Darranda is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Hal IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, avowedly heterosexual populace, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.675 billion Darrandans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Véldon. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darrandan economy, worth a remarkable 2,418 trillion Rrydgas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 249,944 Rrydgas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", Darranda's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darranda's national animal is the Royal Cat Yellow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darranda is ranked 200,493rd in the world and 551st in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Primitive, scoring -421.77 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
